The Mountain from Terje Sorgjerd on Vimeo.
When I was about 15 years old I contemplated the vast night sky and felt very, very small. It was the first time I placed myself in the context of The Universe. I was a little frightened and unnerved to feel utterly insignificant.
Now, many years later, I have a completely different perspective. I feel perfectly inter-connected. Scientifically it's been proven that we are composed of the same molecules as the stars! It feels infinitely comforting to know that I am a part of something so beautiful, magical and majestic.
I feel extremely grateful today to be a part of everything that exists, to be able to recognize the nature of reality. It's fleeting and ever-changing, exquisitely complex, and dazzling.
